Topic of the practice
urban freight policies
Good Practice Information
This document presents the global mobility policy of Paris, integrating urban goods movements. The MMP aims at improving air quality and public health, promoting accessibility and social justice, making the city more pleasant, increasing its economic performance. An important amount of the document is devoted to freight transport. Stakeholders: Paris City council, economic and social stakeholders, borough representatives, local organizations, business organisations.
The decision to give goods movements a similar level of priority within the management of the City as public transport or non-motorised transport methods represented a radical change in direction. Hence, rather than thinking purely in terms of traffic, a comprehensive urban approach to the transport of goods was adopted.
The Paris freight program is discussed and agreed with stakeholders such as carriers and merchants business, associations, network operators, large businesses, Paris chamber of commerce, public utilities;
The objectives of the MMP are in line with the Paris freight program; this means that partnership and supporting stakeholders are involved de facto in the MMP.
Critical success factors: Needs public private collaboration to achieve MMP targets, and a strong political will. Freight objectives have been discussed with private stakeholders in charge of the implementation. This public private discussion is a key factor of transferability
